M Boss,

The answer to your question is a subjective one since it depends on matters of personal preference or the preferences of customers to whom the pizzas are to be sold. Even professional pizza operators donít agree on the amounts of sauce to use on their pizzas. However, the following items from the PMQ Think Tank might be of interest: http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=9919#9919, http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=28678#28678, http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=3828#3828, and http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=18992#18992. The second link above also includes a method of calculating the amount of sauce for a given size of pizza if there is a known amount of sauce that works for another size pizza (see the post by Tom Lehmann).
